A Tip from Timmie and craft meet photos

Hi all,well hope you are all well in blogland,I have had a fab day at the Bristol play day yesterday catching up with friends, lots of chatting, yummy food and even some crafting :-)
Thought I would share a tip with you that Timmie aka Tim Holtz shared with us at the Coventry workshop.
This will stop your glossy accents getting all blocked :-)
All you need is a plastic tag,I found plenty on son's bedroom floor!

Insert in bottle when not in use ( trim according to size of bottle )

Fits neatly inside the lid so able to close still and viola no blocked bottles :-)
Have been using this method ever since and it works

And I would highly recommend the scrubby as your new best friend if like me you get very inky

Before picture - messy alchohol inks

After picture - just add soap and water and hey presto and I think I even converted Noreen and Amanda with it

And finally some photos, Sher took this one and my first thought is twins lol
It's me on the left hard at work and Kelly busy colouring

L to R is Noreen, Jackie and Sue

And Tracy and June both looking very crafty

L to R is Kelly, Jane and Amanda
Forgot to get one of Amanda with her latex gloves on lol

L to R Amanda, Sher, Noreen, Jackie and Sue

It was a small group this time but according to Jackie's decibel meter on her phone we were just as noisy lol
Will be back tomorrow to share my tag I made x
